15mm Hordes of Things

Last night I visited Colin's for an evening of Hordes of Things in the true scale of war-gaming,  15mm !. Well its the true scale as we both have tonnes of armies so we might aswell use them.

 I have only ever played HOT 4 years ago so it was good to get back into it. I broight along my Goblins and Colin played with Goblins and Ratmen.

We had 4 games I recall - I got slaughtered in 3 as most new players are but I won 1 game due to a vast amount of luck and some tough troops performing at the right time. Experimenting with different troops types was a good learning curve so hopefully we can have some more games in the future.

Very enjoyable to get back into it and I am now finishing the big pointy things for my other armies.

La Victoire est à Nous

This song has been stuck in my head for weeks now after I watched a clip of Waterloo.

It's quite helpful in getting into my work or sorting out my 28mm Napoleonic Westphalians. I touched up this unit last night, their uniform is so incorrect its laughable but I did paint them 8 years ago after a 10 year hiatus from wargaming.
Next to repaint are the Westphalian Guard Grenadiers, Westphalian Jager, all my artillery and then get cracking on the Saxons. Should be done in a week (seriously)!
